That's the hard part.  There is no percentage in having a library if
it doesn't do anything significantly different from what you could
accomplish via
        system("pg_dump ...switches....");

What is it you hope to accomplish by having a library, exactly?
(And don't say "more control over the dump process".  pg_dump is already
on the hairy edge of maintainability; we do *not* need to try to deal
with making it still function correctly after an application programmer
makes some random intervention in the process.)
